1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

Advice Hw75 Trigger Adjustment

    Hello all,

    I had a go at adjusting the trigger on my 75 last night. I wanted a shorter second stage, but after a fair bit of tinkering I got nowhere fast. I tried out following the 45 guide on YouTube afterwards but this didn't work. Anyone know of a guide, or can offer any tips? I managed to get a short second stage, but then either the action wouldn't cock or the trigger let off after about 2mm of travel in the first stage. When I got it functioning properly I was back to where I started.:facepalm:
    Any help would be gratefully received.
    Thanks,
    Simon

    The trigger is very good, but I would prefer a shorter second stage.:)

    Do you mean more of a hair trigger?

    Sorry, I haven't made it very clear :facepalm:. I would prefer it to have a longer first stage and the breaking point to be shorter. The weight is spot on as it came.
    Thanks,
    Simon

    sorry i dont understand what you mean. a longer first stage i get but when you reach the second stage any further pressure and the second stage should break, crisply. sometimes described as breaking like glass.

    When the trigger breaks, I would like it so that there is less travel after the breaking point. At the moment there is a lot of travel afterwards.

    I don't get why you would want more travel after the breaking point?
    Do you call the 'breaking point', the point when the gun fires or the end of the first stage?

    I don't want more travel after the breaking point, I want less. So at the end of the first stage, the trigger stops at the point where another squeeze fires. After the pistol fires I want less travel than I currently have. I would like to set it up similar to my 45, whereas the point where the pistol fires there is only a couple of mm left of travel before the trigger stops. Apologies, I'm struggling to explain it clearly. I want the 75 trigger setup similar to the result obtained from following the hw45 trigger setup video if that makes sense?

    But you are happy with the trigger up to the second stage stop. And you are happy with the crispness of the actual break. Then the pellet is on its way so what on earth does it matter how much the travel continues at that point you are done with the trigger until the next shot. I would not be messing around with a great trigger just to try to replicate a different trigger. The 45 trigger has to hold back all the weight behind that spring. This is not the case with a PCP. I dont suppose they are even the same trigger. I would leave well alone.

    Hello,

    Did you ever sort your trigger adjustment out?

    I must have short fingers and would like to move the trigger back towards the stock a little. Is this possible?

    Thanks,

    Andrew

    Hello,
    I've not got any further with mine as I've mainly been using the 45's and blackstar's lately. I will get round to it eventually. I tried messing around a bit, but didn't really make much progress.
    Good luck with yours.
    Atb,
    Simon

    Thanks Simon. Did the trigger move when you moved either of the grub screws?

    I'll try and contact Hull Cartridge and see if they have any advise.

    As far as I'm aware, the trigger won't move backwards, just where the first stage travel ends would be adjusted, if that makes sense?
    Atb,

    Dear Simon,

    You are right. I had a play last night and this is what happens.

    Many thanks
